So last week we were talking about "Omega-3" deficiency in this great country of ours . . .
And according to the US Dietary Guidelines . . .
Over 68% of "all" adults in the US . . . "DO NOT" consume enough "Omega-3" fatty acids for optimal health.
And guess what???
Are you sitting down???
They also go on to say that . . . 95% of our "children" are "Omega-3" DEFICIENT.
And with this . . . the 2 "most" common symptoms are . . . "asthma" . . . and "ADHD".
WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE???
It's time to . . . LISTEN UP PEOPLE!!!
So let's take today and better understand . . . "asthma" . . .
First question . . . what is "asthma"???
Well . . . in simple terms . . .
"Asthma" is a chronic (long-term) condition that affects the "airways" in the "lungs"!
And these "airways" that carry air in and out of the lungs . . . become "inflamed" and "narrow" in size over time. With the "most" common "triggers" being . . . allergies, air pollution or other airborne irritants, respiratory infections, exercise or physical activity, weather and air temperature, strong emotions . . . or even some medications.
And this can bring on common symptoms like . . .
Coughing - especially at night
Shortness of breath
And Wheezing when exhaling
Okay . . . so with that being said . . . IS THERE A CURE???
Well . . . conventional medicine and its science . . . says . . . "NO"!
However . . . in that same statement . . . they also say . . .
Some people have "childhood asthma" and its symptoms can "decrease" with age.
And . . . if "asthma" ISN'T treated . . . the body can feel tired, stressed, anxiety ridden, depressed . . . or we could get a lung infection with long lasting scarring.
And add to that in "children" . . . "untreated" asthma can cause . . . a delay in growth or puberty.
So what does "conventional medicine" say is the "best" treatment for "asthma"???
Well . . . that would be . . . "inhalers" that contain a combination of both a "corticosteroid" and a "bronchodilator".
But . . . unfortunately . . . the side effects can be . . .
A sore mouth or throat
A hoarse or croaky voice
And worse yet . . .
"Oral thrush" . . . which is a "fungal infection" that causes white patches, redness and soreness in the mouth.
Other side effects are . . .
Tremors and increased nervousness
And in "children" . . . "insomnia", nausea, fever, bronchospasm, vomiting, headaches, dizziness, coughing, allergic reactions, dry mouth, sweating, chills and dyspepsia
And why is this you ask???
Well . . . the "steroids" in these medications . . . actually "KILL" the body's "GOOD BACTERIA"
So tomorrow . . . let's continue and add "Omega-3 fats" into this equation.
